Travel-Sized Beauty Favourites for Your Next Holiday
Times are tough right now. As well as the ongoing societal problem of systematic and systemic racism against black people across the world, the Coronavirus pandemic continues. With many of us still abiding by lockdown restrictions, travelling has been severely disrupted.  You may have had a holiday planned that’s been cancelled or postponed. You might have planned to take a quick trip away to escape the hustle and bustle of life. You probably planned a staycation to get away from your hometown for a short while. Regardless of your travel plans, it’s annoying to have to put things on hold.

Face SPF Products You Need to Try Right Now
It’s hot. There I said it. It really crept up on us. We were given rain and storms before a heatwave no one saw coming. I’m the first to burn too. I’ll step outside and within 10 minutes, I’m a rosy hue. This list is as much for me as it is you and I’m excited about it, let me tell you.

Summer Lovin’
You've binge-watched Normal People, developed a mild case of repetitive strain injury from swiping left on boys who are 'just looking for a quarantine buddy ;)' and Love Island 2020 (much like my own love life) is cancelled.   If you're a hopeless romantic like myself and need your fix of summer lovin' in the absence of skin-tight white jeans peacocking around a firepit (I mock, but I've never missed an episode), then pick up a love story.

The Benefits of Meditation On Your Mental Health
Life is still a little on the crazy side right now… I mean, if you’d have asked me back in January what I thought I’d achieve this year, you can bet your bottom dollar I wouldn’t have said building a loungewear collection and not leaving my house for months, other than to go food shopping and walk the dog. No socialising… no holidays… not going into work…  Life has literally been flipped upside down for a lot of people and now more than ever, it’s important to look after our mental health and wellbeing. Spending most of your time alone, or with the same few people in your household can also be hard, especially if you’re a natural social butterfly.

Autumn Pamper Night Ideas

Autumn is now officially here, where the weather gets colder and the evenings get darker. Some of us may need some extra pampering and self-care to get through the next few months and with everything that’s going on in the world we all deserve a little treat, so here are five ways to pamper yourself at home.

Have a hot bath with a bath bomb

There’s nothing I love more than coming home from the cold and jumping into a hot bath especially if it includes a bath bomb. When I’m in the mood for a serious pamper session, I always go for one of my Lush bath bombs. One of my favourites is called Twilight, which fizzes across the bath leaving the water a midnight blue and pink while smelling of lavender for a calm mind and soothed body. After the bath, I feel perfectly relaxed and ready for more pampering.

Dip into your luxurious body care

Almost everyone has that stash of luxury products that you keep for special occasions and when you want a real treat. I like to save a few products for when I want to have a pamper night at home. Some of these products include my Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Body cleanser because it is the most luxurious product and leaves my skin feeling silky soft as it gently exfoliates and cleanses the body. Whenever I use this product, I know I’m in for a relaxing evening.

Do your skincare routine

One of my favourite things to do is to actually take all of my makeup off after a long day and fully clean my skin, I always find that it makes me feel refreshed. Doing your skincare routine can actually be pretty relaxing and it is time to take for yourself to wash away the day and get your skin ready for a face mask. Whenever I’m wanting to relax when doing my skincare routine, I like to add a few extra steps so I’m getting the full package treatment like adding a face mask, under-eye patches and change up my cleansing routine to a more luxurious product.

Get Reading

Another way that I really like to relax and practice a bit of self-care is to curl up with a good book. Whenever I’m reading and I really get into a book anything could be happening and I wouldn’t even notice. I find reading a way to escape and go into a new world. A book I have been reading recently is The Hunger Games Trilogy, I have watched all the movies before but never sat and read the books and now that I have I don’t know how I didn’t do this from the start, they are so good.

Binge-Watch on Netflix

Since lockdown ended, I haven’t watched as much Netflix as I would like because I’m back at work, but I like to dedicate a few hours of my pamper evening to binge-watching a few hours of my favourite shows while curled up on the sofa with some snacks. Netflix has so many great shows and too many to choose from sometimes. Some of my favourite shows are Gilmore Girls, which I have to watch every October as a tradition, and Brooklyn 99 which is a feel-good comedy that I recommend anyone try.

Having pamper evenings is one of my favourite ways to practice self-care and recharge myself for the next day. I hope this gives you some inspiration on how to have your own autumn pamper night at home.
